"The challenge these days, is to be somewhere, to belong to some particular place, invest oneself in it, draw strength and courage from it, to dwell in a community"
In response to these wise words from bell hooks (philosopher, teacher, activist) we invite our Postgraduate Researcher community to come together in celebration of the potential that research holds to make a difference. Our MDX research community is united by a commitment to generate knowledge that contributes towards fairer, healthier, more prosperous, and sustainable societies. Radical creativity plays a significant role in achieving this goal. To that end, the theme of this year’s conference: ‘Radically Creative: Research towards an Equal, Ethical, Inclusive and Sustainable Future’ provides a rich ‘somewhere’ to collectively dwell upon the potential for research to be bold, creative and impactful.
We are very happy to officially open this year's preparations for the Summer Conference and welcome our colleagues and students to participate. The Conference this year is chaired by Prof Jayne Osgood and Dr Tuan Le (Programme), together with current postgraduate researchers Patrycja Brodka Pedro and Haider Alkhateeb.
We invite postgraduate researchers from all disciplines to submit abstracts which respond directly to the theme, and which set out how radical creativity informs your research. Postgraduate students at all stages of their doctoral journey are expected to submit an abstract.
The PRSC is an important event in the MDX calendar because it offers the chance to come together in celebration of the research undertaken by postgraduate researchers across the Faculties and within our Collaborative Partner Institutions. It is a vital opportunity to share ideas, create fruitful collaborations and crucially ‘dwell in a community’. The PRSC 2023 will take place on our London campus, and will include several high-profile Keynote speakers with close connections to Mdx, and whose words will set the tone of the conference. Those unable to attend in person can join virtually but we are very much anticipating an engaging, lively, and convivial in-person event.
The conference will comprise the following forms of participation:
- Individual Paper Presentation
- Self-organised Symposium
- Video screening with commentary
- Pre-recorded presentation if unable to attend (approved by your supervisory team)
We are looking forward to receiving your abstracts and welcoming everyone to the Conference!
